Important Notes
This section lists information that you should consider before you use DCFM 10.4.5. See the DCFM User Manual for full details on the following notes.

M-EOSc switches with SNMPv3 enabled cannot be managed thru DCFM. SNMPv3 needs to be disabled.
If SNMPv3 is enabled on M-EOSc switches, SNMPv1 is automatically disabled. SNMPv3 and SNMPv1 cannot be enabled simultaneously. Since DCFM 10.4.0 uses only SNMPv1 to manage the M-EOSc switches, the manageability link will not get established, if SNMPv3 is enabled. It is recommended to disable SNMPv3 using CLI.

Upgrade switches running FOS v5.2.1_NI to v6.0.0 or higher


To completely manage a fabric, in DCFM, where the seed switch is running FOS v52.1_NI, it is recommended to upgrade the switch to FOS v6.0.0 or higher. Failure to do so will limit the ability to manage fabric services such as Zoning. However, monitoring features such as Status, Events, and Performance Monitoring should not be affected.

Creating tape pool in a mixed FOS version environment


If FOS versions 6.2.0 and 6.1.1_enc_X (where X is any released version) are deployed in an environment, the user should not configure any Tape Pool information. If Tape Pool information is configured and a failover occurs where the 6.1.1_enc_X node becomes the group leader, the user will not be able to remove the created tape pool.

DCFM Pro services do not auto-start on Linux and Solaris


After a restart DCFM Pro, services need to be manually started on both Linux and Solaris. DCFM client will fail to launch, unless the services are started.

Event priority mismatch


Error-level policies can sometimes be triggered by warning-level events.

Config Download fails when all parameters are selected


When Configdownload is attempted from one virtual switch to another virtual switch and when all parameters are selected where the Fabric IDs are not identical, download will fail

Switch name update delay


When changing the name of a switch from outside of DCFM the new name for the switch will not be reflected within DCFM for up to 15 minutes, depending on SAN Size selection.

Event-based file actions fail


DCFM event-actions will fail to run scripts on remote-mounted file systems under Windows.

EX-Port disabled when configuring Routing Domain IDs


In the Routing Domain IDs dialog, if a user adds the appropriate Domain IDs to the front and xlate domains, clicking OK will disabled the EX_Ports with the message EX_PORT ISOLATE.

Page 17 of 37

Removing Switches
If you plan to segment and remove multiple switches (more than 2) from a fabric and you have historical performance collection enabled, it is recommended that you accept changes after each switch segmentation from the client rather than doing it together.

DCFM Clients
As a best practice, it is recommended that the clients, which are not being used actively, should be shutdown. This will free up the server resources. In some scenarios, if duplicate entries are seen in the Product List, please restart the client.

Secure FOS fabrics cannot be discovered from DCFM


DCFM does not support Secure FOS (SFOS). If the user tries to discover the fabric, DCFM will show an error message that Discovery Failed. User will have to remove the secure FOS settings and change it back to normal fabric before discovering it from DCFM

Encryption config has limited support and slow to register change for LUN provisioning
The current commit limitation of 25 is for the total transactions, which includes add, update and remove LUNs. To workaround this, please commit the transaction first before making further changes.

IFL connection shown in topology after deleting all the VE-VEX tunnels present between the 7800 switches
After deleting all the VE-VEX tunnels present between the 7800 switches, sometimes the IFL connection shown in topology. It is recommended to Unmonitor and monitor the switch again. TR 259685

F_Ports connected to Access Gateway are not shown as attached ports under the switch
If Access Gateway is connected to switch, F_Ports connected to access gateway are not shown as attached virtual ports under the switch. It is recommended to launch a new client TR 253462

Connection between AG and switch are not shown when F_Port trunking is enabled on the AG
If a switch is configured with F_Port trunking and the AG is connected to the switch, F_Port trunk group icon is not shown in the product tree and connection between switch and AG is also not shown in topology. It is recommended to disable F_Port trunking on switch. TR 253201

Users of DCFM and who use SysLog Host Configuration for events (Defect# 259950)
HCM Agent needs to be restarted if firewall settings on port# 514 changed in VMware. VMware (Esx 3.5 & 4) blocks the Syslog outgoing port 514 by default. We need to configure the firewall to allow outgoing port 514 for Syslog if you plan to use Syslog Host configuration or use HCM as part of DCFM. Use the command esxcfgfirewall -o 514, udp, out, syslog to open the port 514 and use the command esxcfg-firewall -c 514, udp, out, syslog to block outgoing traffic thru 514 port.

Device Port update in topology View


In the case of a Non-VF environment, when the switches are discovered using SNMP V3, and if SSN (Soft Serial Number) is configured and if the EXT MIB is enabled, the device ports status update would take 2 to 30 minutes (based on SAN size) to get updated in the GUI. In order to get updates within 1 to 3 minutes (based on SAN size) in these scenarios, disable EXT MIB.

Changing Password to Database


You are advised to change the default password to the database to prevent unauthorized access to the database. To change the database password, go to the Install_Home/bin directory and 1) open a command window and 2) type dbpassword User_Name Password New_Password Confirm_Password and press Enter. Further details are provided in the Changing the database user password section in the DCFM User Manual (Chapter 1--Getting Started)

Indications
The time to deliver the indication will vary based on DCFM SAN size selected during installation. If large SAN size is selected, indication delivery time will be longer.

SNMP Registration
Provider classes may take more time to update the fabric changes if the switches managed in DCFM are not SNMP registered. As this would cause a delay in indication delivery, all the switches managed in DCFM

should be SNMP registered

Logging for CIMOM


The default logging level is "INFO" in integrated Agent. To change the logging level to DEBUG, update the "com.brocade" category value in cimom-log4j.xml file present in <Installation Dir>\conf folder. The log file size and number of log files also can be changed by modifying the file rolling appender parameters in this cimom-log4j.xml file.

On page 51, in the Host discovery section, edit the Configuring virtual machine credentials procedure as detailed above for the Professional User Manual. On page 170, in the SMI Agent configuration section, add the following information.

Service Location Protocol (SLP) support


The Management application SMI Agent uses Service Location Protocol (SLP) to allow applications to discover the existence, location, and configuration of WBEM services in enterprise networks. You do not need a WBEM client to use SLP discovery to find a WBEM Server; that is, SLP discovery might already know about the location and capabilities of the WBEM Server to which it wants to send its requests. In such environments, you do not need to start the SLP component of the Management application SMI Agent. However, in a dynamically changing enterprise network environment, many WBEM clients might choose to use SLP discovery to find the location and capabilities of other WBEM Servers. In such environments, start the SLP component of the Management application SMI Agent to allow advertisement of its existence, location, and capabilities. SLP installation is optional and you can configure it during Management application configuration. Once installed, SLP starts whenever the Management application SMI Agent starts.

Management application SMI Agent SLP support includes the following components:
slpd script starts the slpd platform slpd program acts as a Service Agent (SA). A different slpd binary executable file exists for UNIX and Windows systems. slptool script starts the slptool platform-specific program slptool program can be used to verify whether SLP is operating properly or not. A different slptool exists for UNIX and Windows.

By default, the Management application SMI Agent is configured to advertise itself as a Service Agent (SA). The advertised SLP template shows its location (IP address) and the WBEM Services it supports. The default advertised WBEM services show the Management application SMI Agent: accepts WBEM requests over HTTP without SSL on TCP port 5988 accepts WBEM requests over HTTPS using SSL on TCP port 5989

slptool commands
Use the following slptool commands to verify whether the SLP is operating properly. slptool findsrvs service:service-agent Use this command to verify that the Management application SMI Agent SLP service is properly running as a Service Agent (SA). Example output: service:service-agent://127.0.0.1,65535 slptool findsrvs service:wbem Use this command to verify that the Management application SMI Agent SLP service is properly advertising its WBEM services. Example outputs: service:wbem:https://10.0.1.3:5989,65535 service:wbem:http://10.0.1.3:5988,65535 This output shows the functionalities of Management application SMI Agent:
